I have 21 iMacs and students have to save their work to the local machine. They are unable to save to the network folder.

There are now over a dozen versions of "windows server"

I think you may need to get your IT to fix this. If the IT fails, then you ask your HR to get them trained or replaced.

We are a very small organization and we don't really have an IT department. I was hoping this is something I could fix myself. I believe it is windows server 2003.

At that scale you need to

Decide to get help or call Apple/Microsoft on that if you decide it's too much to research on the usual web sites.

There are a dozen ways to set this up and this is why I can't give you a straight answer other than you get the training or do the research.

Notice there are many steps involved at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708087%28v=ws.10%29.aspx and I wonder if you might be in over your head here.

You could make matters worse if you are too new to this. What's wrong with leaving it as is?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
